Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Father’s Day. 🙂
This post is something I’ve wanted to put together for a while. I see a lot of people create their own “X Things I’ve Learned in X Years” list that they’re able to add to every year and I really love the idea. It’s the morning after my 29th (gasp) birthday and I woke up feeling so grateful for so many things. I thought I would turn this into a mini Becoming Bella post and share my own list of personal lessons (to date!) that have proved to be so darn valuable! I hope you enjoy. XO
Today is my 28th birthday – holy moly. If you’ve followed my blog over the last year, you know that it’s been a wild 365 days [to say the least], but I intended it to be! 🙂
This post is LONG, and kind of personal, but I wanted to write it for me. If you do read through it, I hope that it inspires or resonates with you. I also hope it makes some kind of sense, it’s currently 4:08AM — eeeek! Enjoy! XO
This year, I’ve taken my birthday as an opportunity to step back and kind of reevaluate my life. For the past few months, I’ve been thinking about where I am, where I thought I would be, and where I still want to go…
The warm weather arrived in CT — and just in time for a fun weekend! My sister turned 20 on Saturday & my college roommate had her bridal shower on Sunday! It was definitely busy, but I loved every moment! Here’s a peek at my camera roll 🙂
My beautiful Mom turned 50 over the weekend! She is the most wonderful woman you’d ever meet, I’m so lucky to have such a special lady in my life. She’s always putting everyone else before herself, she has the most positive outlook on life, and lives everyday with such a full heart. She is simply beautiful from the inside out & just radiates with joy & love. I hope that I can become half the woman that she is one day. 🙂
To honor her big day, we planned a clambake at our home & were SO happy to have so many friends & family members come out to celebrate! Thank you to everyone who attended, and to my wonderful family for helping my Dad, siblings & I pull this together! It was such a fun night 🙂
Below is a slideshow of pictures from the party.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! I love you.
[[FYI – We hired Capt’n Johns Clambakes out of Norwalk, CT to cater the event – they did SUCH a wonderful job. I can’t stop raving about how excellent their staff & food was.]]
